  • Retirement lodge nurse recognized for excellent work

    Joe Classen is a young man with a big heart.

    After working all day caring for residents at Carveth Retirement Lodge, Joe goes home and cares for a yard full of chickens, ducks, dogs and a cat. His love for others is visible in everything he does as evident by a trip to Africa 10 years ago to see elephants in the wild.

    “It was my dream to go on a safari,” he confirms. “It was a beautiful place.”

    A member of the health care team at the popular home for the past eight years, Joe joined Carveth as a Personal Support Worker and retrained to become a Registered Practical Nurse. His favourite part of the job is interacting with residents, staff, doctors, and families.

    “I love it,” he says about his job in mid-July 2022. “Some days are better than others, but I love it.”

    Asked to describe himself, the 29-year-old from Leeds and Thousand Islands says he is a hard worker with a good sense of humour.

    “I try to see the best in everyone,” he explains. “And I work as hard as I can.”

    Speaking on behalf of the home, Administrator Brett Gibson notes, “I have watched Joe from his beginning at Carveth, to the leader he has become in the retirement home. His passion for our residents and knowledge of both positions are a real asset to our home. Joe is very deserving of this recognition.”

  • Amherstview woman recognized for good work

    A Residential Aide at Helen Henderson Retirement Lodge has been named the home’s Employee of the Month for August.

    Smiling from the popular home in mid-July 2022, Sarah Lamothe admits she is happy and excited to win the workplace award.

    “I love it here,” she says, happily, referring to her work caring for approximately 70 residents in the lodge. “I love the residents; every day is different. I like the family atmosphere and the consistency.”

    A resident of Amherstview with two young children, the 29-year-old is currently studying to become a nurse. When she’s not in school or working, she likes to travel and find new and interesting activities for her children.

    “I love spending time with my family,” she replies quickly when asked about her spare time.

    Known for her easy-going nature, Sarah says she finds the home special because, “Everything we do is appreciated. It’s very welcoming, here. I’ve made a lot of friends.”

    Sarah’s father served in the military, and she moved around quite a bit when she was younger. She has worked at Helen Henderson Retirement Lodge since 2021. She hopes to work at the home as a Registered Nurse when she’s finished school.

    “I would come back here to work in a minute,” the young woman confirms.
